Denver over Jacksonville may have been the clear-cut choice of many knockout pool players, but count me as one Jets fan who could see Sunday’s exasperating 19-6 home loss to Pittsburgh coming from a mile away.
For all that went wrong, some of Smith’s problems were the fault of the coaching staff. Rex Ryan and Marty Mornhinweg called a conservative game, so much so that they hamstrung the rookie from what he does best.
Forget about it. The mission no longer is about saving New York’s playoff hopes, it’s about finding out which pieces need to be part of the new foundation.
Ask Cotchery if Sunday will serve as a homecoming of sorts when he and the rest of the Steelers play at the Meadowlands and Cotchery just shakes his head. “I’ve been adopted by the Steelers, man,” he says.
Thursday’s loss in Chicago dropped Big Blue to 0-6, their worst start since the sorry season of 1976. And now some are banging the drum for New York to sit the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
The Giants were moving the ball, driving for the potential winning score when Eli Manning got picked off one final time. And the losing streak continues.
First we got to hear ‘Boomer’s Fantasy’ with regards to Week 6 of the fantasy football season, as the Booms shared a couple of notable players you might want to get on your squad ASAP…
Most folks in the Tri-State area would say the Giants have no shot to make the playoffs after an 0-5 start. We say “most” because there’s a group that won’t give up just yet — the guys in the locker room.
“I mean, that’s just how I am,” Smith said Wednesday. “My Mom thought it was weird. I never really got big on Christmas when I was a kid. That’s just how I was all the time.”
The high-powered passing game may light up the scoreboard during the regular season, but it’s not the way to dominate in the postseason. Exhibit A: the Giants.
The performance was so dominant Sunday that Candlestick Park was filled with a chant of “Let’s go Giants!” with nearly 4 minutes to play.
The Giants issued a statement of their own to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh on Sunday. Maybe the rest of the NFL, too.
This is purgatory for Jets fans like me. Look, I’m thrilled that the line was rejuvenated, if only for a week. But I don’t see how it will be enough to get New York to the postseason tournament.
Jets fans can now take a deep breath. If they can get to 4-4 at the bye, they’ll be alive and kicking.
If the Jets don’t get to 3-3, it’s going to be hard to stay in the race for a playoff spot. Playoffs? Did I just say playoffs?
